Labor shortage, inflation causes Missouri taxi company to close shop
Taxi Terry’s owners Angie and Terry Nickerson Sr. join ‘Fox & Friends’ to discuss how labor shortage and inflation has deeply impacted their business.
A Missouri taxi company that faithfully served the local community for over a decade is closing shop for good after two years of labor shortages, rising gas prices and supply chain issues.
"It really was a mixture of all the things," Taxi Terry’s co-owner Angie Nickerson told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Friday.
"Definitely labor shortage, gas prices, cars in the shop, not being able to get parts. I mean, all of it combined in one… it was time."
